    In the for what it's worth department, I would tap it as flat as I could and then seal it with a dab of furnace cement. That way you don't lay awake at night wondering if it is sealed.

    tap,tap,tap, fixed. I thought that lip would be alot stiffer than it is. That stuff is pretty soft, just taped a small mallet to a broom stick stuck it up there and viola! a flush joint. Thanks again to everyone for the advice.

    I thought a flush joint is what happens when the cops are knocking at the door. ;-P

    Good to hear the fix was easy. I love it when things go well.
